2010 Mock Draft (4 Full Rounds)
Now that the Combine is over, it’s time for the mocks to re-commence with all the fresh information that teams have collected about players and what it will do to their stock.
Here is a look at the first four rounds of the draft. I’ve included rough guesses at the projected compensatory picks based off the information provided by blogger AdamJT13. I wound up only adding three picks to the draft: one each to the Titans and Bengals at the end of the third round, and a fourth to the Falcons.
1. Rams – QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
Strongly believe that the Rams will take a quarterback here due to money and the fact that they’ve neglected the position for years.
2. Lions – DT Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska
Really a toss-up between Suh and McCoy, but I think Suh gets the slight edge because his strength will remind Jim Schwartz of Albert Haynesworth.
3. Buccaneers – DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma
It’s really a no-brainer pick at this point. He gives them a disruptive presence that should remind many in the organization of a young Warren Sapp.
4. Redskins – OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State
The Redskins line is in bad shape.
5. Chiefs – S Eric Berry, Tennessee
Usually Pioli goes with linemen in the first, but I think Berry’s talent will pull him in another direction.
6. Seahawks – QB Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame
The Seahawks want a QB, and Carroll’s familiarity with Clausen will give him an edge.
7. Browns – CB Joe Haden, Florida
With Berry off the board, the Browns take the next best defensive back.
8. Raiders – OT Bruce Campbell, Maryland
Strong combine will shoot him up the boards, and fits nicely in Oakland because of his superior athleticism and their need for offensive linemen.
9. Bills – OT Bryan Bulaga, Iowa
Not flashy, but a steady left tackle to help improve their crappy offensive line.
10. Jaguars – DE Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida
He’s a bit of a gamble, but the Jaguars will fall in love with his upside just like they did Matt Jones.
11. Broncos (from Bears) – WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State
If the Broncos deal Marshall, then it opens up the opportunity for Bryant.
12. Dolphins – NT Dan Williams, Tennessee
They need a nose tackle to replace Ferguson.
13. 49ers – OT Anthony Davis, Rutgers
He’ll be asked to man the right side.
14. Seahawks (from Broncos) – OT Trent Williams, Oklahoma
He’ll be tapped to replace Walter Jones on the left side.
15. Giants – LB Rolando McClain, Alabama
A big, physical run stuffer to replace Pierce in the middle.
16. Titans – DE Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech
They want a pass rusher, they get a pass rusher.
17. 49ers (from Panthers) – RB C.J. Spiller, Clemson
He’ll add depth at running back as well as help them out on special teams.
18. Steelers – S Earl Thomas, Texas
Can contribute potentially at corner or safety, both of which are needs.
19. Falcons – LB Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri
Perfect fit to replace Peterson on the outside.
20. Texans – CB Kyle Wilson, Boise State
He’ll be asked to replace Dunta Robinson.
21. Bengals – DT Brian Price, UCLA
Injuries to both of their starters have them looking at depth.
22. Patriots – DE Jared Odrick, Penn State
Good fit into the 3-4, will be asked to replace Seymour.
23. Packers – OG Mike Iupati, Idaho
Powerful run blocker that should upgrade over Colledge.
24. Eagles – OC Maurkice Pouncey, Florida
Can potentially start at either center or guard, where Jackson and Andrews are coming off injuries.
25. Ravens – TE Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma
Gives them a big tight end with potential to replace Heap down the road.
26. Cardinals – LB Sergio Kindle, Texas
They add much needed youth on the outside.
27. Cowboys – OT Charles Brown, Southern California
Should be a better pass protector than Adams.
28. Chargers – NT Terrence Cody, Alabama
Gives them a nice wide-body to develop behind Jamal Williams.
29. Jets – WR Golden Tate, Notre Dame
He’ll be used much the same way as Percy Harvin was used this past year.
30. Vikings – CB Patrick Robinson, Florida State
Injury to Griffin means he’ll have a chance to start right away.
31. Colts – DE Brandon Graham, Michigan
The Colts love undersized pass rushers.
32. Saints – DE Carlos Dunlap, Florida
They’ll envision him as a replacement for Charles Grant on the left side.
33. Rams – DE Everson Griffen, Southern California
Speedy pass rusher should team up nicely with Chris Long.
34. Lions – RB Ryan Mathews, Fresno State
They hope he can be better able to carry the load than Kevin Smith.
35. Buccaneers – WR Arrelious Benn, Illinois
He’ll be asked to be Freeman’s primary target.
36. Chiefs – TE Aaron Hernandez, Florida
They are hoping he brings them shades of Gonzalez.
37. Redskins – QB Tony Pike, Cincinnati
Shanahan gets his big-armed passer that he can develop.
38. Browns – S Taylor Mays, Southern California
They’ll hope he can help out their weak secondary.
39. Raiders – LB Daryl Washington, Texas Christian
Linebacker loaded with speed, just like the Raiders like.
40. Seahawks – RB Jonathan Dwyer, Georgia Tech
Should provide a nice power runner in Carroll’s offense.
41. Bills – NT Cam Thomas, North Carolina
Big widebody that should be a nice fit in their conversion to the 3-4.
42. Buccaneers (from Bears) – CB Devin McCourty, Rutgers
He’ll be groomed to replace Barber.
43. Dolphins – LB Ricky Sapp, Clemson
Hope he can offset some of the pass rush they lose with Porter.

They hope he can be a more reliable target than Watson was.

They will like him in their three-man front.

Gives them a nice cover safety to shore up their pass defense.
47. Patriots (from Titans) – LB Brandon Spikes, Florida
A good fit to play with Mayo in the middle.
48. Panthers – WR Demaryius Thomas, Georgia Tech
They hope he can give them another playmaker opposite Smith
49. 49ers – S Chad Jones, LSU
Big hard-hitting safety to groom behind Michael Lewis.
50. Chiefs (from Falcons) – LB Jerry Hughes, Texas Christian
Will be groomed to replace Vrabel.
51. Texans – WR Brandon LaFell, LSU
They think he can be a better complement to Johnson.

Can help at corner as well as kickoff returner.
53. Patriots – LB Jason Worilds, Virginia Tech
Helps out their pass rush.
54. Bengals – WR Damian Williams, Southern California
Hoping he can be a playmaker on offense.
55. Eagles – DE Corey Wootton, Northwestern
He’ll help out their pass rush and rotation.

Gives them a solid 1-2 punch with him and Grant.

A nice cover corner that can replace Washington.

He’ll be asked to replace Dansby.
